I agree with the reviewer who commented on the surprise, but workability of the narrators accents. It explains alot about the syntax Mannie uses. You'll quickly get used to it, and it goes far in letting the listener track WHO is talking.
What can I say? It's classic Heinlein at his best. The anachronisms are a bit attention getting, but not so much that it detracts from the story.
This is a must for any sci-fi buff's collection.
This was a very good read. What I found thought provoking was the novel idea of accelerating time through the 'spin'. Very fascinating, and where the author goes with that will keep you glued to the speakers.
The only questionable aspect to the story was how DENSE some of the characters were to the time disparity. I chalked it to the author trying to reinforce those aspects of the story, and easily forgot the "duh" factor. (face it, many REAL people are dense)
I'd recommend this book to anybody.
